Venture Analyst

Netherlands, Zuid-Holland, RotterdamDevelopment

Job description

At Builders, we dream big and dare to turn our dreams into reality. The single most important goal of our studio is to build companies that solve daily challenges for modern-day workforces. To achieve this, we rigorously follow a process of creating and operating SaaS startups by internally generating, conceptualising, and validating promising business ideas and finding the right co-founders to build powerful tech companies together.

As our Venture Analyst, you will play a defining role in the discovery phase of company creation by identifying and analysing emerging markets and new investment trends. You’ll prepare all necessary information and data to get entrepreneurs-in-residence involved to commit and focus full-time on one of the promising opportunities.

You’ll work together with the studio team to support our co-founders as they journey to build a venture from spark to champagne. You’ll do this by leveraging Builders’ infrastructure, playbooks, and data-driven principles; you’ll track emerging markets and investments trends, becoming a subject matter expert in the “future of work and living” category with a B2B SaaS specialisation. You’ll also help continually refine and optimize our evaluation process.


To keep track of what we’re accomplishing at the studio, you’ll help out with financial and metric reporting at the studio level. Think SaaS metrics and financial models. In short, you’ll be a key player in deciding which startup ideas progress, keep track of their metrics and help make them a success.
